Time to reflect

Very well maintained and clean area, great for picnics as well close to the river. And not to far from town central.

Really beautiful cemetery. Brings home the gravity of the war. Impeccable up keeping. Spending some time just reflecting is well worth it.

Well done to the people that look after and maintain the cemetery. Everyone should stop and look and pay respect. It was great to show the kids. Very peaceful and respectful. Well done Adelaide River.

It was heartwarming to see this place so well maintained and obviously well maintained War Cemetery. I felt very humbled by the experience of visiting this place. Loved the large trees outside; Mahogany, Bohdi tree (on that Buddha gained enlightenment under) and many other tree.

Emotional and moving place to visit. Where Australia was defended in WWII. Make it part of an NT experience.

We read this is the fourth largest Commonwealth War Graves in the country. Adelaide River is not the first place in the tourist map but this is a beautiful memorial gardens with the remains of those who perished in WWII in Darwin. Beautifully maintained. Congrats Comm War Graves!

We were staying in Darwin and had hired a car. So a day trip back to the Adelaide River War Cemetery and then a stop at Berry Springs Nature Reserve was in order. We had learnt a lot about the part Darwin played in WW2, so it was special to visit the War Cemetery. This is an immaculately kept place... More

What a lovely place to visit. A lot of people wouldn't know how hard Darwin was hit but a lovely war cemetery is just off the road in Adelaide River. Manicured lawns and a visitors centre with video of what happened. Well worth getting out in the heat to have a break.

I went to the war Cemetary close to Tolga in Queensland and now I've been fortunate enough to come here. It will never matter how many years ago these veterans have died, by visiting these poignant places one must acknowledge their sacrifice for our freedom. I will probably never get to the European cemeteries, but you have made it profound... More
